We stayed 5 nights at King Fisher with our 3 month old son. The room was very clean and well planned out. The balcony was our favorite feature as it was nice to sit, relax, listen to the ocean and sometimes see a kingfisher bird fly into sight. The service by all staff was friendly and efficient. We ate many times at the hotel and enjoyed the meals...our favorites being the Spicy Ginger Prawns, Prawn Pita Wrap and the mixed fruit juice! We ate at 4 other places along the beach and wished we just ate at the hotel restaurant! The owner was very kind and ensured my wife, son and I made it to our next stop in Sri Lanka safe and sound.

we did love this hotel could not complain about anything they did . However Friday and saturday is disco night and the boom boom of house music was awful . ear plugs did not work for me as I could feel the beat in my chest. fireworks at 2.00 am on these night is normal. Other than that food great staff lovely decor chic.

Kingfisher gave as a fantastic reception giving us a hint what was to come. What more could you ask for .... an excellent restaurant on "your own" beach with a beautiful, generous room with a fantastic view just two stairs up. with its four de luxe rooms Kingfisher is special in many ways... located directly on the beach on a quiet area makes it close to paradise and a private little hideaway. The amazing staff and owners made everything possible for us to feel "at home" and also special. The restaurant has an exciting menu with top-class food, surely the best in Unawatuna at very sympathetic prices. A social chapter should be written about the beach bar... the best mede drinks by the coolest bartenders... in a fantastic setting. Kingfisher is hard to leave but very easy to come to.... which we surely will. Quoting Tina Turner; "Simply the best"
Ett måste att komma tillbaka till.... flera gånger.

The hotel is right on the Unawatuna beach and one of the most buzzing and popular spots on Unawatuna. The hotel's bar is a few meters from the shore. The tables on the sand under the palm trees. The room's verandah overlooks the sea. The room & bathroom are spacious, modern and clean. The bathroom does not have a door so better if you are a couple! Else stay alone! Great value for money. Only drawback is one cannot chill out on their side of the beach because there isnt much dry sand there and its a little rocky. Guests have to walk down the beach and grab a lounge chair available. But its really no big deal and you would do that anyway to check out the beach and restaurants along the beach. The bar can get a little noisy.

Room Tip: Take a room on the second floor on the left hand side. Its clear of the trees so the sea view should...

Just back from 12 night stay in Sri Lanka. We were keen to visit some beach side restaurants (we were staying in Koggala about 15 minutes away by Tuk Tuk) and read brilliant reviews previously about Kingfisher so decided to try it out for ourselves. The setting was idyllic with candle lit tables set on a small sandy part of beach next to the beach bar, casual laid back place with surprisingly attentive service. Aside from the fantastic setting the food is the star of the show in particular the fresh caught seafood. Brilliant simply cooked food we sampled on 4 occasions. Staff were friendly and the service was excellent. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Will be back next year. Message to Kingfisher, please don't change a thing - you're doing everything right ! Thanks for a great time....

We stayed here for one night and the room was the nicest we had on our whole trip. Room was very nice and super clean, nice large bed. Bathroom was very nice with a sea view. Only four rooms so nice and quiet. Really nice large balcony to the sea with comfortable chairs. Staff were helpful and nice. Food was very good.
